This Full Blown 70mm throttle body is a great upgrade over the stock 60mm throttle body. It maintains the IAC valve and TPS while doing away with the pre/post throttle body vacuum ports and water inlet/outlet. The neck on the throttle body is not as delicate as some people make it out to be, but if you are skeptical about using a T-Bolt clamp, the traditional worm clamp will do just fine.
One issue I ran into was that while using the throttle body spacer/reducer plate, the throttle cable becomes overextended and the throttle body will not close completely. The solution would be to either remove the plate and bolt it directly to the intake manifold, or keep the plate and further slot the throttle cable bracket to create the slack it needs for the throttle body to close completely.
Ordered a Full Blown throttle body from MAP. It was dropped shipped from Full Blown's warehouse. It arrived via FedEx damaged. I called and sent pics to MAP. They had to contact Full Blown for advise on what they want to do. I ordered it 2nd day so it would arrive in time for a race that weekend. Full Blown only offered $20 for the damage throttle body. Pretty crappy if you ask me.....but what choice did I have. I had a race to do......MAP took care of it and sent me a cam sensor cover for the problem.
I will think twice before I by a Full Blown item again!!!!
PROPS for MAP!!! for taking care of the customer....me
got this tb to go with a map rev 3 im but have yet to get the im. put this on a stock im and it woke the car up. i cant wat to pair this with the rev 3 and a set of cams.
A year and a half after I bought it, after experiencing the last 6 months of idle problems, I went to clean it and found the inlet crushed by the t-bolt clamp connecting the UICP.
It turns out I used the wrong size t-bolt clamp (3", 79mm/87mm) and it crushed it. Make sure you use the right size T-bolt (2.75") or just use a worm!
This throttle body was mostly like stock during it's life except for a chronic stickiness that would cause it to jump when trying to roll on the throttle. This was pretty annoying and caused you to modify your driving style but other than that it was a good unit. If not for that I would have given it 5 stars.
